Trip Ideas: Nature & Wildlife

Aroostook is the state’s largest and northernmost county and is known to Mainers simply as "The County." With more than 2,000 lakes, streams and ponds Aroostook is a wildlife lover’s paradise. In Presque Isle, don’t miss the start of a fascinating scale model of the solar system that stretches along Route 1 to Houlton. Enter the North Maine Woods and its 3.5 million acres of undeveloped wilderness or plan a guided canoe trip through the 92-mile chain of lakes, ponds and rivers that forms the Allagash Wilderness Waterway.

The County also offers 2,300 miles of groomed snowmobile trails and 1,200 miles of contiguous ATV trails with lodging and dining establishments along the way — a great way to enjoy Maine’s great outdoors.

Eagle Lake Trip


Turn off I-95 onto State Route 212W, follow to the end (10 miles) west to State Route 11 North to Eagle Lake (about 70 miles from I-95).

This is a leisurely and scenic drive, be sure to watch for moose!


Arrive at historic Eagle Lake Sporting Camps. Enjoy lunch on the deck overlooking Eagle Lake. Ahhh!


Spend your afternoon viewing specialty birds or boreal species, either on land or water. During spring and summer there are 16 hours of daylight here, so an avid birder can sometimes record as many as 100 species in a day!

Day's End

Star gazing at its best and brightest, the Camps are off the grid!
